After Fire, Johnny Cash's Foundations to be Preserved
Last week Tennessee and the Johnny Cash loving community was hit with some rather sad news. The lakeside home where Cash wrote many of his famous songs and lived with June Carter Cash from 1986 until their deaths in 2003 was burned to the ground during renovations. In a statement released a few hours ago, Bee Gees singer Barry Gibb has vowed to protect the foundations of this musical landmark, "the original foundations shall be kept intact and preserved for the people of Hendersonville and the people of Nashville." Gibbs purchased the house in 2006 and were going through some routine renovations when the house caught flame.
